Companies Act 2006

Section 159: Existing under-age directors

286.This section is a new transitional provision. Subsections (1) and (2) provide that where a person under 16 has been appointed as director (or holds the office of director by virtue of another office or is a corporation sole) prior to the prohibition on under age directors coming into force, that person will cease to be a director when the prohibition in section 157 comes into force. Subsection (3) makes it the company’s responsibility to amend its register of directors accordingly but the company is not required to notify the registrar of the change. Subsection (4) gives the registrar power to amend the register without a notification by the company of the director’s removal but rather on the basis of information already held (i.e. the date of birth as provided when the appointment was notified).
